    HUNDREDS of travellers were stranded on Tuesday and Wednesday, following closure of Seme border in Lagos.
    The border links Nigeria with some neighbouring West African countries.
    Some Nigerians, who took to Twitter to lament, said they were not aware of the development, said they got to the border and were refused entry. 
    Some traders from Benin Republic who had come to Nigeria also got stranded at the border. 
    “I have been at Seme border for over 7 hours and no official communication about the closure keeping us here,” Onos, a Twitter user wrote.

    Nigeria immigrations are treating their fellow Nigeria's like animals are the Seme border. I have been here since 6pm yesterday.
    I pity this country.

    The user added that “soldiers with guns are manning the border. No going out, no coming in. The only information we have is that it’s a federal instruction.” 
    Some travellers said they had to pay commercial motorcycles who took them across through illegal routes.  (ThecableNg)
